NEENAH, WI—Maxcess, a global leader in innovative products and services for web handling applications, has announced a new carbon fiber dead shaft idler roll from Webex. Composed of a lightweight carbon-fiber composite, the new dead shaft idler rolls promise higher load capacities with lower inertia.
“We developed the new CF carbon fiber idler rolls for customers who demand high strengths, yet require lightweight idler rolls for their application,” said Darren Irons, global product manager for the Maxcess Precision Rolls Group. “These idler rolls are ideal for running wider, lighter weight webs while offering some of the lowest inertia ratings of any roller on the market.”
Available in three sizes, the new CF carbon fiber dead shaft idler rolls are unmatched for their combined qualities of strength and low weight, one-third of the weight of a comparable standard aluminum idler roll with greater load bearing capacity.
